    I love my GTB track frame

    I got tired of looking at my GTB sitting idle, I didn't have pedals for it, so I switched out some pedals and finally got it back on the road. I don't know why it took me so long to do it. Riding it today was a blast, I forgot what that bike has for heart. It isn't that special. It's a used frame that I've tweaked to my liking and has been a blast to ride. It has me wondering if I wouldn't enjoy another used track frame. I keep going to One on One, and seeing these track frames, but they are steel and one a lugged steel frame. I like my Pista, I've had my problems with it, but I'm getting through them. I just wonder if I couldn't trade it for another frame and build up a steel track frame the way I built up the GTB.
    I know that I can buy the bike with payments but maybe I can give up the Pista, and build something else up.

    Did you by chance buy the GTB @ the One on One?

    and if you did, did it by chance have orange tape on profile bullhorns?

    Nope, bought the frame from Sunrise Cycles at Lake and 2nd. Wasn't sure that I'd enjoy it, and had a little problem with fitting the axles of my Surley 1x1 in the drop outs, a nail file to the paint enabled me to fit it. Found a Dedi track bar from a Bianchi at Grand Performance, tried riding with a Salsa stem, it was a little too long for me, so it's been replaced. I had to borrow the fork from an old Cannondale frame that I've had sitting around waiting to be built up.
    Both are aluminum, and every bounce and jar is transfered through the frame. Saint Paul's concrete roads are a Biatch.
